An Online/MedComm Business Unit Leader…

  • Location: NYC/Southern California
  • Reference Code: 15373

This dynamic physician executive is committed to finding his next role as President or Managing Director for a medical communications group with broad offerings that can impact patient care. He received his joint MD/MBA from a top 20 medical school and his BA from an Ivy League college. He most recently led the strategy group, with 21 staff responsible for generating $70MM in annual revenues, for one of the world’s largest healthcare information properties headquartered in NYC.

Career Accomplishments include:

  • Conceived and built a $10MM medical education sister agency to a $25MM online physician marketing agency over 2 years. Grew clinicians’ interest by offering ‘best-in-class’, clinically-relevant resources across a variety of media, creating a 400k+ membership database of healthcare professionals consuming 100k+ CME credits/year. Outcome of the rapid growth was the 2006 acquisition by the market leader in online marketing to the healthcare community of both patients and clinicians.
  • Upgraded an immature internet business model from delivering healthcare professional “eyeballs” to delivering revenue from Pharma/Device companies. Founded a team to both source and deliver on annual advertising revenue run rates which grew from $0 to $5MM/yr in year 2 and $10MM in year 5. Success resulted from designing a digital approach to clinical education and outcome measurement for practicing clinicians. Company acquired by an international technology holding company to establish a Pharma footprint in the U.S.
  • Established himself as an expert on effective medical communications through consistently publishing peer-reviewed articles and presenting in major conferences on both clinical and communications topics. Collaborative efforts include research and educational activities developed jointly with industry, government and academic partners such as PhRMA, FDA, CMS, AHRQ, ACC, the University of Wisconsin and others.
  • A natural leader of people, has been asked to serve in voluntary leadership roles in both a professional capacity as a Board Director and Treasurer-elect with the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education (a membership organization of >2500 individuals with clinical education responsibilities in academic institutions, professional organizations, hospital networks and medical publishers), as well as in a personal capacity as President of the Board Co-operative where he and his family reside in NYC.

His next career move is one that will allow him to further improve patient care through broad and strategic communication and behavior-changing efforts which require visionary leadership. The ideal organization would allow him to “lead a sophisticated and diverse team with a patient-centric mission” to create value across a spectrum from individual patients to the organization’s clients to the organization itself.

As he currently is located in NYC with his wife and son, he is prioritizing opportunities there and in California, though with the right circumstances he is also open to relocation elsewhere in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia.
